1.Unity: Drumming is a powerful experience of unity for a group, bringing people together with a common focus. Drumming leaves people with a sense of belonging.

2. Skills development. With focus on the specific brief and the objectives of the conference, team building activity or training program, we facilitate a structured programme using the core concepts found in orchestrated music to showcase harmonious working relationships and develop skills that are utilised daily in the work place. This serves to enhance company ethos. It highlights the learning of a new skill, and on top of that encourages the ability to embrace change as the session evolves. People learn to listen to each other and work in a cooperative rather than competitive manner. It is a way to feel the power of interdependent working relationships, and leaves the participants feeling a sense of belonging. Drumming teaches coordination to people, that is beneficial to them in their lives. Left and right brain are used at the same time, which stimulates creativity and increases concentration. The understanding of the importance of rhythm in all areas of life can be a great insight. This carries over into the workplace through new thought processing and encourages “thinking outside of the square”.

3. Mental Shift: The effects of drumming on peoples mental state is very profound in that the focus, stress release and group energy after a circle, all add together to leave people feeling both stimulated, relaxed and receptive. This is effective as a tool to set the atmosphere and tone of a conference, team building activity and corporate events.

4. Physical Shift: It is physical activity, which can be a great stress release. Breaks the ice and leaves people feeling relaxed. The feeling experienced after drumming in a group has been likened to the effect derived from meditation and is therefore very rejuvenating.

5. Breaking barriers: Drumming is successful in groups of very diverse participants. Old, young, male female, any religion, language, seniority etc can all do it together and it is a very universal activity. Sometimes it is healthy for management to do something together with other departments where the playing fields are leveled.

6. Fun: Really fun way to do something together. Everybody will be smiling and in a great mood. Really breaks the ice. It’s a real celebration as people relax and feel comfortable to interact with each other. Drumming has been used in for centuries to celebrate, reward and inspire.

7. Unique: Drumming is very memorable since it is such an unusual thing to do. Most people will never have drummed before, and certainly would not have seen a large group formed into an instant orchestra. We give each delegate an authentic Djembe drum, originating in West Africa.

8. Multicultural Diversity: Drumming is a great way to open people up to the beauty of diverse cultures. It is a universal language and therefore showcases the power of multiculturalism. We can do entire shows without saying a word in English, using only body language.

How does the drum help to relieve stress? There are numerous ways this occurs. When people drum, they are generally having fun. It is difficult to be in a playful mode and be stressed at the same time. Also, as described previously, the drum has the capacity to release negative feelings-of which stress is clearly one. When one hits the drum, he or she is placed squarely in the here and now. Some of our stress is created from past or future thoughts of fear, worry, or regret, but it is very difficult to be stressed and be in the present moment.
